Does anyone else experience an upset stomach a couple of hours after a workout ? Its happened a couple of times now, i eat a lite breakfast and leave time for it to go down and eat an hour or so after working out, and then an hour or so after that everything seems to go through me. Any advice ?

I used to - I assumed it was the jiggling about which just gets things moving hmm

Also you tend to wolf down water when working out and that can make you go too.

I often get this an hour or two after running. If you google "runnners diarrhoea" you will find there is a lot of information around on this, and strategies to help avoid it. In particular, avoiding caffeine, eating very lightly, and going for a poo before a run/workout seem to reduce the risk for me. Strangely some people seem to find dehydration can also increase the risk.
